Silvermoon, I am shocked and amazed at what you can do with a small amount of time, and you're new at embroidery?Huh Again shocked! It's brillant!!

 Embarrassed Naw shucks. Coming from you, that means a lot.

It's not really a short amount of time - I was up until 1am three nights, and took it with me on the hour drive each way to Christmas lunch with the in-laws.
Also, since I was using the Spoonflower print, I just followed the brush strokes on the print, so it was easier than having to decide where each stitch went.

love the embroidery silvermoon! I have cross stitched for years but am scared to dive into embroidery... You are so inspiring to just dive in!


So Christmas is over in Australia and here are (most of) the gifts I made in the sewing and baking marathon of december 24! In no particular order...

Set of customised tea towels for my sister and BIL to go with a curry cookbook.


our Christmas tree on Christmas morning with DS's Santa sack on the right. It's a little bigger than I planned because I forgot to allow for the red trim, so the green part is the size I was going to make. I thought of shortening it but it worked out well because little kids toys seem to come in stupidly big packages.


mug rugs for my teenage cousins. The mushrooms are for a girl and the green one is for a boy. I don't have too many masculine fabrics thus the piecing.


two of the eight boxes of choc chip cookies. I didn't get a pic of all the cookies before packaging because it was a rush to get it all done before DS got home from day care! But I got 30-odd gluten free cookies (out of a recipe that said it made 18) and because I didn't think I'd have enough in that batch to fill all boxes I made a non-gluten free batch. So I now have a LOT of cookie dough in the fridge that I need to freeze because there's no way I'm even thinking about turning on the oven in the next week - they are forecasting a week of about 38-39C (about 100F I think)..


this set is for my great aunty and uncle. It's hard to see the pattern (I'll try and get a close up of the fabric) but its a tiny pink and green floral. Their living area is pink, green and blue floral so I thought it would go well. I backed one with a pink and the other a green.


for another aunty and uncle


for another aunty and uncle. I bought a scrap bag from one of the online fabric shops I use and these two pieces were just a little too narrow, so I had to add a piece.


I have been making a quilt for my cousin's son for ages (it WILL be finished in Jan!) and since they like dr seuss then I used scraps to make their mug rugs. They were a huge pain though, so I will utilise triangle scraps some other way!


I also made bunting for my nephew and cousin's son using scraps from their respective quilts (the animals and dr seuss) as well as some suitcase handle covers for my parents. I will try and get some pics of those to post.

I wasn't sure how to count all of these mug rugs, so I think I will count each set as one item. Some were a lot more work than others, some being pieced and others not, but I couldn't count them all as one!

oh and here is a pic of one of a set of six fabric placemats I made for a personal swap. Of course, as usual I forgot a pic before I closed the parcel, so when I get pics of the rest I will post.



The other items I made were three crochet snowflakes and a crochet hook roll.

I need to update my list again with the more recent projects I have completed. Still nowhere near 50 but at least I got things done. Next year should be more productive; at least I hope it will be!

Wow mellybelly81, you have been sewing up a storm!

How did people like the little boxes for the cookies? I find those to be so cool.

oh wow--last minute holiday goodies always amaze me...I burn out pretty quickly!  I managed to finish knitting the dread hat for my niece's hubby but I still have some knitting to finish up for late presents! Cheesy

I made IOU notes for those and put them in a card with a piece of the yarn...that was the best I could do! Cheesy

I love all the tea towels and mug rugs...and the big old gift sack!  Wow--lucky kids!

Mio--love your crochet blankets...they are so much fun and so colorful!

(I miss you, Mio! Smiley )

silvermoon--ha ha I love the tardis in the starry night!  My nephew's partner was so enchanted with my nearly finished Dr. Who scarf...he said I had to finish it so he could take a picture and post it for me...he is such a grown-up geek! Cheesy
